The Secretariat General of Sport (S.G.S) of Greece is responsible for the national executive planning and has overall responsibility for all issues concerning progress, organisation and function of Sports in the country.

More specifically, it is responsible for supervising sports activities, drawing up short-term and long-term projects on sports development, providing all the necessary facilities for the implementation of these projects and promoting sports development in every field of social activity. Staffed with skilled and experienced personnel, S.G.S. implements sport policy at national level.
